Air interface protocol links to ISM-band transceivers

Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) has introduced a new development tool for its ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) band transceivers. The ADIismLINK protocol is designed to speed wireless product development by allowing designers to establish a radio link between multiple ADF702x transceivers straight out of the box.

By simplifying the design process, the protocol is targeted to designers of wireless equipment in a wide range of applications, including home and building automation, industrial automation, consumer and communication electronics, alarm and security systems, and smart sensor networks.

By using the tool, wireless product designers can transfer data between multiple units (slave node) and a master node without having to spend time developing their own protocol software. The software is available as part of the existing hardware development kits offered for the ADF702x transceiver family.

It is also transportable to the company's MicroConverter family of analog microcontrollers which combine precision analog functions, such as high resolution ADCs and DACs, a voltage reference, and temperature sensor, with an industry-standard microcontroller and embedded flash memory.

Also available is Version 2.7 of the ADIsimPLL phase-locked loop (PLL) circuit design and evaluation tool. It supports simulations of all key non-linear effects that impact PLL performance. The tool allows designers to work at a high level and directly modify derived parameters such as the loop bandwidth, phase margin and pole locations, and instantly observe the effects of the changes on performance.

The ADIismLINK is available as part of the of the development platform for the ADF702x family of ISM transceivers. The ADIsimPLL development tool is available as a free download from the company's website.
